World Children’s Day 2021 marked the launch of Last Night a DJ Saved My Life’s Set for Love’s Xmas Appeal.
On 20th November, the campaign kicked off with a series of live streams and events with World Children’s Day at their heartbeat and will run right through to year-end.
Claptone led the appeal lineup along with notable performances from the likes of DJ Pierre, Barbara Tucker and MR.C.
The charity is encouraging promoters and DJs of all levels, around the world, to get involved by either streaming a set or hosting an event to raise funds for their campaigns that create a sustainable future for children in developing countries. Anyone wanting to participate can register at setforlove.org and will receive everything they need to promote their event and raise funds as part of the campaign.
Mr.C’s Superfreq brand is one of the key events already on the Set For Love calendar. He hosted a loft party in Los Angeles headlined by none other than Acid House pioneer DJ Pierre. All profits from the party will be donated to the Set For Love Xmas Appeal. The event took place on Friday 19th November, with Superfreq residents David Scuba, Xo Chic and DJ Ideal completing the lineup.
The sets from the Superfreq party were a highlight in the Set For Love headliners live stream showcase, which took place across the launch weekend. The live stream showcase started on Saturday 20th November, World Children’s Day itself, with Claptone headlining, whilst the Superfreq show took place on Sunday 21st November.
Richard West, AKA Mr.C, said, “It’s such a pleasure for myself and Superfreq to be working with Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation and Set For Love for such a great cause as World Children’s Day, here in Los Angeles.
The work they’ve been doing over the years is exemplary and shines a leading light on what the dance music industry can achieve for those in need. I hope many more people will get involved.”
Claptone said, “I’m happy to support this great cause with my Set For Love on World Children’s Day. I’m especially happy to be able to share some new music on the live stream from my new album, ‘Closer’, So two beautiful things have come together, and it feels good to do good!”
Krafty Kuts said, “I feel privileged and honoured to be a part of this incredible event, alongside some very prestigious artists. Having children myself I know how difficult it has been for the last few years but I cannot imagine how hard it is for some of the children less fortunate, so I am very happy to do anything I can to help raise money for this awesome project. I hope you all enjoy my Set For Love, and I thank everyone for their support!”
